Review: THEFACESHOP Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel

“Usually good & pretty things disappear quickly so with your eyes, look at it well & then keep it in your heart.” -Joon Jae’s Mom-

I am a bit absorbed with Legend of the Blue Sea nowadays. I saw Hera Cushion being used by Jun Ji Hyun and I am curious how good that product is! I have also started liking Lee Min Ho, lol. Anyways today I am reviewing a K-Beauty product. Yes K stands of course for Korean! I do not usually buy from The Face Shop because I thought their stuff is pricey, however I like their THEFACESHOP Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel so I dropped by last December. I saw good bb creams and cushions with the same prices with Tonymoly and EtudeHouse. I guess this gives me more options on korean beauty items then.

THEFACESHOP Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel

Formulated with 99% Aloe Vera Leaf Extract from Jeju to soothe and moisturize the skin. This gel can be used for various purposes including moisturizing, soothing, facial pack and after-sun care. As Aloe Vera Leaf Extract is absorbed into the skin without leaving any sticky residue behind, it soothes and moisturizes at the same time.

Originally this was in a big green tub like the Nature Republic one. However after being out of stock for a while it came back in a new packaging! Now its in a big plastic tube which is more convenient and sanitary. No double dipping!

It contains aloe extract from Jeju and its formulated without five additives: parabens, benzophenone, animal-derived ingredients mineral oil and artificial coloring

My skin is micro peeling nowadays and  THEFACESHOP Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel does a good job as it soothes my skin when I apply it on. It has this kinda cool effect but don't get me wrong its not the 'minty' cool effect though. The gel is simply refreshing on the skin. I used Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel to moisturize my face after using my Micellar Water. Its best applied by hands, I just tap tap and massage it on my face.

My skin kinda looks supple after application. The reason is, it doesn't get absorbed very quickly by my skin so it settles on it for a while. It have the usual scent of Aloe Vera. Its really all natural and contains 99% aloe vera, the highest percentage I've seen among the other korean brands.

As you can see the part where I applied the Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel looks glowing and supple.

How much and where to buy?
P195 for a big tube, I bought mine at The Face Shop in Makati.

What I love 
  • Refreshing on the skin
  • Makes skin look supple right after application
  • Multi-functional skin care product (after-sun care, moisturizer...)
  • Affordable
  • No harsh chemicals
  • All natural
  • Doesn't break me out
  • Moisturizes skin
  • Contains 99% aloe extract than other brands
  • Available at the mall
What I don't 
  • Takes a while to be absorbed by the skin
Will I repurchase? 
This is my 2nd purchase, so its a yes!

THEFACESHOP Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel is all-natural, affordable and does the job. I recommend this for all types of skin types. Its very gentle and I bet will work even for sensitive skin. Big thumbs up for Thefaceshop.

Review: Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

I bought this on a whim. Lels as you see, I am fan of multi-purpose products, it makes me feel like I save up money. But hehe funny is that I am easily swayed by such promotion which leads me to buy more which is not saving at all. How ironic is that?

Anyway for today I will be reviewing a product I got from Nature Republic, its Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel which I call Aloe Vera Gel for short. When I entered their store I was welcomed by this in-store signage.

8 purpose in one! Sugoiii~
And I have this certain thing for 'aloe vera'. I like how refreshing aloe vera is and yes its a no brainer! So off to the review:

What is it? 
It is a soothing aloe vera gel with 8 uses.

It's in a tub. I know I know, you might say its unhygienic but I think its the best way to keep a gel product. It has a screw cap with a transparent lid inside to make it secure

I really intend to use Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel as a moisturizer. Crazy, I haven't tried the other uses but I will! I promise to update this when I am not as busy. I really like how non-sticky it is and it is easily absorbed by the skin. The scent is love love love! Its therapeutic~ <3 Just like how I expect this aloe vera gel should be! Its a total treat on the under eyes, especially now that its summer. Its very timely that I bought this as its an instant refreshing product to use after a long tiring day of work.

I also use an exfoliant now but with the help of Nature Republic Soothing Aloe Vera Gel I bid the flaky skin goodbye!

How much and where to buy? 
Nature Republic stores in SM. 300ml of product only costs P245.

What I love
Not sticky
Not oily
No more flaked skin during exfoliation
Soothes skin
Easily absorbed by the skin
Aloe vera scent

What I don't 
It has alcohol in it

This is a bomb if used to relax swollen eyes! Hooray for pamper time~
Can be applied using fingers or with cotton pads

Will I repurchase? 
I am guessing that I will!

A great aloe vera product. Nature Republic Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel is my new favorite moisturizer. I am serious in getting back my skin care routine to ensure clear complexion hehe ...And my first step is to change what I use to products I can really count on, hello korean products!

Have you tried this product from Nature Republic? Feel free to share your favorite moisturizer at the moment. *winks*
